Sundanese Print Culture and Modernity in Nineteenth-century West Java
Sundanese Print Culture and Modernity in 19th-Century West Java traces the development of modern printed books written in Sundanese, the dominant language in West Java, Indonesia, and the mother tongue of about 30 million people. Starting with the "discovery" of Sundanese by Europeans in the early nineteenth century, Mikihiro Moriyama follows the developments in the ensuing century when a small group of Dutch scholars and colonial officials reshaped the language and its literature.
